Creationist is Agenda 21 Paranoiac As Well


To no one’s surprise, it turns out that Dennis Kruse, the Indiana state senator who has tried several times to get creationism into public school science classrooms, is also a raving paranoid who thinks the UN is going to take over the country through that spooky Agenda 21.

Kruse and Rep. Tim Neese have submitted bills in the Indiana legislature to ban the implementation of any initiatives tied to Agenda 21, a UN accord that encourages — and that’s all it does — all nations to make development more environmentally friendly and sustainable. Because that’s an evil communist idea that will destroy American sovereignty and freedom and preventing us from eating apple pie while we say the pledge of allegiance. Or something.

Amusingly, this paranoid nonsense is pushed by both Glenn Beck and Alex Jones, despite Beck dismissing Jones as a conspiracy nut recently.

Beating that drum is Beck and his new novel, named “Agenda 21.” In it, the U.N. creates a global government, abolishes the United States and forces Americans to run on treadmills to generate clean electricity for the New World Order.

“This is a massive movement, and its real intentions are being masked with environmental issues. The bad news is this was set up by those who want to establish a global government system,” Beck said in June 2011 on his Fox show, shortly before it was cancelled.

“Once they put their fangs in our community, they will suck all the blood out of it and we will not be able to survive.”

Yes, of course. And the Chinese are massing troops on the Mexican border. And fluoride is destroying our precious bodily fluids. And the UN is going to invade the country using secret markings on the backs of road signs. Being a right wing paranoiac means never having to admit you were wrong.

    And the Chinese are massing troops on the Mexican border.

    That was actually a claim made by nutcase Rethuglican Congressman James Utt from Orange Co., California (home of all varieties of whackjobs) back in the 1950s. The congressman sent out a franked leaflet to his constituents claiming that 200,000 Red Chinese were massing in Baja California in preparation for an invasion of the United States.

    Speaking of Orange Co., former President Harry Truman was once asked if he was ever nervous about his personal safety during his presidency. He responded the only such feelings he experienced were when he visited Orange Co. because when they shook up the country, all the loose nuts fell into that jurisdiction.

    HAARP is send out mind control waves. The fluoride just makes you susceptible. Ever consider why rich folks have water purification systems? They know enough to stay clear of mind!

    It’s too bad that the Indiana paranoiacs don’t have something to complain about which has more validity like oh, drone use in the US or expansion of automatic license plate readers or expansion of cameras + facial recognition software.

    …forces Americans to run on treadmills to generate clean electricity for the New World Order.

    Considering how many Americans are obese and out of shape, this might not be so bad.

    I know what the AARP is. I am old enough to join. But what does the H stand for?

    Seriously? That would be horribly horribly inefficient, and therefore not even remotely “clean energy.”

    Not to be outdone, Oklahoma’s own wackiest legislator, Sally Kern, has likewise filed a bill in the Oklahoma House, “prohibiting adoption of United Nations Agenda 21/Sustainable Development policies that restrict private property rights without due proces”

    I like a good conspiracy theory like I enjoy a good ghost story. Of course, I stopped believing either of them and saw them as entertainment when I turned 10.

    How will we preserve our precious fluids? You can’t trust the purity of rainwater anymore, thanks to chemtrail pollution.

    Anyone who takes Agenda 21 seriously as some sort of UN plot, brands themselves as a brain dead kook. You can safely assume they have long since given up thinking.

    It’s really striking how unimaginative they are in coming up with conspiracy theories. They all just copy each other. The John Birch society is pushing the UN Agenda 21 fantasy.

    I occasionally encounter what appear to be older people online, ranting and raving about the commies and how they are going to take over the world. If you point out that the Soviet Union fell a generation ago and the commies are all but extinct, it just confuses them.

    FWIW, Glenn Beck has made huge amounts of money out of his pandering and fear mongering.

    His fortune is estimated at $60 to $100 million and going up rapidly.

    It’s OK to laugh and make fun of him. He just takes it to the bank.

    I wonder if the falsely claimed Agenda 21 threat is getting play on Fox News and viral email circuit as well. My state Rep. distinguishes himself as the leader of an initiative to stop Agenda 21 at the state level; as incoherent as that is on so many levels. He seems as smart as the trending conservative viral emails.

    I also perceive the Agenda 21 conspiracy as a new arrow in the quiver to combat any governmental mitigation efforts regarding climate change. It fits nicely with the type of people who deny/avoid climate scientists on the climate, while also fitting the typical conspiracies believed by the demographics of Birchers and One World Order myths (older white conservative Christians who love them some Fox News).

    Huffpo:

    UPDATE: Salon: Two weeks ago I discovered, to my surprise, that I had line-edited an early draft of Glenn Beck’s new novel, “Agenda 21.” Glenn Beck! At the time I was working on it, the manuscript belonged to its actual author, a woman named Harriet Parke, who lives a few minutes from my aunt. But a year and a few lawyers later, Glenn Beck purchased the right to call himself its creator, and Ms. Parke agreed to be presented as a ghostwriter.

    According to Huffpo, Glenn Beck didn’t even write the novel.

    Guy is just turning the fear and paranoia of his none too bright followers into money.

    Lots of money as it happens.

    HAARP is the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, and it controls the weather not the mind.

    I remember Art Bell having people on his show in the 90’s that were convinced of that, anyway.

    What sucks most about conspiracy nutjobs is the way they distract from real privacy and freedom issues.

    Heh. That’s nothing. My personal druthers are going way beyond that. Pretty soon we will all be transported back to the stone age to learn everything all over again. Initiative CW22. Suck it up, people.

    Has anyone ever wondered if all those conspiracy nutjobs are actually all part of a fiendishly clever and secretly-co-ordinated plan to …

    Oh.

    Sorry.
